  Eye disease genetics
  Prof S MacGregor, Dr P Gharahkhani
Application Deadline: 11 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. While there is no cure once visual loss occurs, progressive visual loss and blindness can usually be prevented by timely treatment.
  Genetics of skin cancer
  Dr M Law, Prof S MacGregor
Application Deadline: 11 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Genetics, together with sun exposure, play an important role in the development of skin cancers. Our lab studies both melanoma and keratinocyte cancers.
  Defining the role of p53 in cancer immunotherapy
  Prof Y. Haupt, Dr S. Haupt, Dr P. Neeson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite clear evidence of an association between the tumour suppressor p53 and immunity, a gap in knowledge exists regarding its role in modulating immune responses, or its value in predicting patient responses to immunotherapy.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  Understanding the relationship between type 2 diabetes, genetics and obesity to improve patient outcomes
  Dr A Brown, Prof E Pearson
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a common metabolic disease, characterised by high blood sugar, which can lead to severe medical complications.
